Samsung Galaxy S III Sales Exceed 30 Million Units

The smartphone was launched roughly five months ago

One of the most popular Android smartphones available on the market, Samsung Galaxy S III reached an impressive sales milestone.

GSMArena reports Samsung annonced that no less than 30 million Galaxy S III unit were sold until early November, though the smartphone was launched only five months ago.

The impressive number included all Galaxy S III models, including those launched in the US at various carriers, as well as South Korea and Japan.

However, that doesn't make Samsung's achievement less impressive. If things continue to go so well for Galaxy S III, it won't be a surprise if the South Korean company will announce in just a few month the smartphone crossed the 50 million mark.

In the same piece of news, Samsung confirmed recently it has sold no less than 3 million Galaxy Note II in just 30 days.

Although the amount of units sold is pretty impressive, the Galaxy Note II has less chances to beat Samsung Galaxy S III's 30 million mark anytime soon.

Still, the comparison between the two devices would be unfortunate given the fact that Galaxy Note II, Samsung's new Android flagship smartphone, is priced higher than the Galaxy S III.

It is also worth mentioning Samsung Galaxy S III has already received a few price cuts since it was launched back in May.

Even though that will reduce Samsung's profits for quite a bit, the South Korean company will probably manage to win more on the quantity side.

With the holiday season just around the corner, we expect Samsung to sell more than 40 million Galaxy S III units by the end of the year.

Obviously, Galaxy S III sales are likely drop big several weeks ahead of next Samsung Unpacked event, where the South Korean company is expected to unveil the next generation Galaxy S smartphone.
